Taken from a Pathe newsreel of 1929. At a guess, it looks like somewhere on Darlington Street East, perhaps just past the Silverwell.

Keith, because of the gradient I think it's more likley to be Greenough Street.

On reflection that does seem more likely Tom.

I think you are right Tom. It looks like the top of Greenough Street with the photographer having his back to what is now Boyswell house.

As Carl states, definately Greenough Street. Two double fronted houses just behind the cart. Three chimneys on stacks indicating cellars.
